Fashion designer and committed vegetarian Stella McCartney is the daughter of ex-Beatle Paul McCartney and his late wife, Linda. n 1995 Stella McCartney burst into the fashion world when she invited friends and super models Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss to model a collection of her clothes at her graduation from London's Central St. Martins College of Art & Design. Two years later she was tapped to be head designer at the fashion house Chloe. In 2001 McCartney landed a joint venture with Gucci Group, which agreed to let the young designer have her own label. She has since gone on to launch a number of different products, from lingerie and eye care, to organic skincare and perfume.
